I have ridden Campagnolo equipped bikes since 2006, and I will build this with Shimano 6870 Di2 (internal battery). Have not decided whether to go with a full group, or use Rotor cranks and TRP brakes etc. Since 6870 won’t be available in several months I have plenty of time to decide.
The focus of the build will be different since the R3 was a light all-rounder and the S5 will be a lot heavier, but since I ride in flat terrain for 98% of the time it will hopefully be faster. I have been curious of aero-bikes for a long time and I have finally come to the understanding that a 400g-ish weight penalty will (hopefully) not make the bike unridable on hills.
Have yet to decide on wheels, but it will most likely be some sort of 60mm carbon tubs.
Frame Weight (including 5 bottle cage bolts):
Fork (with crown race, 8g)
Headset (nice and flat top cap compared to the volcano one on my last Cervélo):
I´ll keep posting as the parts drop in, and when I need input for decisions
You going aero brakes? If you are going cable brakes, look at the TriRig aero brakes. Good deal for probably one of, if not the, fastest brake.
AERO & LIGHT is RIGHT
Cervelo SLC 5960g/13.13 lbs
TriRig looks interesting, how do they compare to traditional brakes when it comes to stopping power?
BmanX wrote:I hate the weight of the Cervelo posts. That is why I went the route I did with my post/saddle combo from Berk which is about 60g lighter than just your post.
And you save around 130 g for extra 300€(calculated on my example with 70 g saddle).
I also have Berk combo on my Flash 29 er, but on S5 combo doesnt look good, thats MO.
Zipp 404 Firecrest tubular
KCNC skewers, will likely use these. (used them a couple months this summer, took them off my old bike before selling it)
Selle Italia SLR. I wanted a saddle with round rails to be able to use the standard seat clamp without modification. The idea is that the red stripe will match the 3T Team stem/bar that is in the plan.
